According to biology, animals are organisms that cannot make their own food.

Unlike plants, which create their own food, animals depend on other plants or animals to drive their nourishment. Organisms on Earth are differentiated into broadly two types, plants and animals.

Our Earth is home to more than 1.5 million species of animals. We human beings also belong to the category of animals. A special demarcation of animals is based on their body structure and symmetry.

Almost all animals are symmetric in nature, be it radially or bilaterally, i.e., each half is the exact opposite of the other half. Animals are said to have appeared on Earth more than 650 million years ago.

The first animal had an aquatic habitat. Animals can be classified into two types, vertebrates and invertebrates. Animals that have a fixed spinal cord like us are vertebrates, while those like the octopus who don't have one are invertebrates.

According to the evolution norms, animals first appeared on the water, and then they started adapting to the climate and gradually started making their niche on land.
